TV Land Greenlights 'American Woman'

Get your platforms and bell-bottoms ready! TV Land has picked up a new dramedy set in the 1970s – “American Woman.”

The new series, which is inspired by the upbringing of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards (she serves as a co-executive producer on the show), will star Alicia Silverstone, Mena Suvari and Jennifer Bartles.

Set during the sexual revolution, the 12-episode first season sees Alicia playing single mom Bonnie, who is dealing with the struggles of raising her two daughters. Mena and Jennifer play her best friends, Kathleen and Diana, respectively.

Kyle already documented filming of the pilot – which also features “American Horror Story’s” Cheyenne Jackson – on Instagram.

John Riggi (“30 Rock” and “The Comeback”) serves as the show’s writer and executive producer, while John Wells (“Shameless” and “ER”) is also an executive producer.

A premiere date has not been set, but TV Land confirmed it will hit the airwaves in 2017.
